Fruity Lemonade Ice Pops

Is there anything better than a homemade ice pop? Hmmm. No. Not to me and definitely not to the two kids living under my roof. I'm pretty sure that both Kenya and Chloe have ice pop radar because they always seem to know when I've put a new batch in the freezer -- even if they didn't see me make them. It's like they have some kind of sixth sense where they can hear the pops summoning them from behind the freezer door.

The other day, after a long afternoon of running around, I came home to find Chloe waiting for me at the back door. "Mommy, look what I found! An ice pop!" Found?, I thought. More like this is what happens when you have an older brother who can open heavy doors for you when you ask him to. You find things. However, Chloe's happy discovery is much to my sheer delight -- and so are these magically tasty ice pops.

The recipe is simple_ fresh squeezed lemonade poured over chunks of juicy fruit and then frozen. I used kiwis and blueberries for mine because I just love how they look suspended together in the golden ice, but you can use any kind of fresh fruit you like -- pineapple, strawberries, mango -- there are no end to the possibilities.

Kenya and Chloe had such big smiles on their faces when they found these pops. And why wouldn't they, there's nothing better.
